Candi Staton - I'd Rather Be An Old Man's Sweetheart (Than A Young Man's Fool) Lyrics




You may think I'm silly to love a man twice my age
But I know from experience, girls, sometime with pain
The man I've got, the fire is almost gone
He can't heat up nobody's eyes
He got just enough to keep me warm
I'd rather be an old man's sweetheart
Than to be a young man's fool, oh yeah

To love you once a month is all an old man desires
You can love a young man 7 days a week
And still he's not satisfied
And old man would be so grateful
You could just sit and talk
But a young man is somewhere doing the camel walk
I'd rather be an old man's sweetheart
Than to be a young man's fool, yeah, yeah, yeah

Most girls prefer a young man
'Cause a young man is strong - tell him, let me be
But I'd rather put up with this old man
Than have a young man doing me wrong
And old man would be so grateful - tell him
You could just let him sit and talk - tell him, let me be
But a young man is somewhere busy doing the camel walk
I'd rather be an old man's sweetheart
Than to be a young man's fool

Don't wanna be your fool, no
Don't wanna be your fool
Ain't gonna be your fool
Don't wanna be no fool
Young man, just ain't gonna do that
No no, don't wanna be no fool
Ain't gonna be no fool

    ~ 1969, the month was May, and this r&b jam dancer stomper song was playing all over New Orleans. This is the start of the Candi Staton extravaganza. Let's honour our great living divas (R.I.P. Lyn Collins, Donna Summer), and honour the greats like Candi, Aretha & Diana. Cheers, DAVEDJ ~

    I saw her in San Francisco in a small club in the late seventies or so and there was no one there. I couldn't believe it. She was absolutely great. I asked if she would do this song and she said, "That old thing? Nah, we don't do that one anymore."

    =( I know artists are excited to get their new stuff out there, but that's sad they refused to do it.....it still reigns true as pretty good advice if you ask me.

    Awesome track. This seems to be a slightly different recording than the one that's on Candi's 'I'm just a prisoner' CD. That one doesn't have the guitar riff in the first few seconds, and it fades out earlier. I prefer this version.
